PANORAMA EPHEMERA (2004, 89:35 min., color and black and white) is a collage of sequences drawn from a wide variety of ephemeral (industrial, advertising, educational and amateur) films, touring the conflicted landscapes of twentieth-century America. The films' often-skewed visions construct an American history filled with horror and hope, unreeling in familiar and unexpected ways. PANORAMA EPHEMERA focuses on familiar and mythical activities and images in America (1626-1978). Many creatures...

This was our final project at Western Oregon University's Film Scoring class. The movie is called "The Day Called 'X' A (Part I)" which was found at the Prelinger Archives. I edited the movie to shorten the time and to get rid of scenes with music so I could add my own. The second cue was recorded by Kevin Elmore and edited by me. The second music cue includes 3 live instruments (fellow classmates and composers) with a midi realization. Editing was done with IMovie, Pro Tools free,...

Nudity alert. A collection of girly clips, set to a nicely bombastic piece of music. This movie is made entirely from the vintage burlesque shorts available here at the PRELINGER ARCHIVES. Every shot involves nudity or near-nudity. Do not download this movie if you are a repressed, blue-nosed freak. The files I uploaded are the VCD-ready MPEG1 and the Quicktime .mov.

In 1979, some friends and I were messing around with a video camera in a slum area of town that had largely burned down and never been rebuilt. The video camera was old, with a heavy, over the shouder separate deck, obsolete even then. We saw some stuff flying around the buildings. At first we thought they were kites or maybe some radio controlled toy planes. We never did figure out what they were, but we got some of the stuff on video. It appeared as if there were two things, one smaller than... ( 16 reviews ) Topic: UFO

Every afficianado of ephemeral public-domain films is familiar with the gratuitous and ubiquitous "purple vomit sequences" that inexplicably appeared in a great number of these films over a twenty-year period.

"The future can be found in many places. It can be seen reflected in the eyes of those who are privileged to look at it." The narrative is from a (now) public domain film of the same name made in 1950, about the development of microwave radio transmission and the transistor. What is lovely about viewing this now is the timelessness of the message contained within; the will to find newer, faster ways to communicate. "In my view of the future the novelty will wear off.
